Hiel ya ho boys, let her go boys,
Swing her head round towards the weather.
Hiel ya ho boys, and we'll go boys,
sailing homeward to Mingulay.

What care we how high the Minch is,
what care we oh, for wind or weather,
Hiel ya ho boys, and we'll go boys,
sailing homeward to Mingulay.

Wives are waiting by the harbour,
they are waiting till break o' dayoh.
They are waiting for their loved ones,
to return to Mingulay.
